“I am sign”

[Sketch of “keep out” sign]

I am a sign. I live on the Smith family’s garden. I have stood here for many years in rain, snow, and sunshine all day and night. Some times the birds flying in the air stop on me and sing sweet songs and I nearly fall asleep.

One day as I was standing in the garden a girl came along and stopped to look at some flower’s in the garden. As she was going to pick some blossoms she looked around and saw me. She become so frightened that she

jumped up and ran away.

Thats how I work for the Smith family garden.
